The Pumas benefited from the negative results of their three rivals for the last ticket to the playoff; now they must beat America
Pumas will arrive at the game before America with the possibility of obtaining ticket number 12 for the final phase of Liga MX. The match that closes the regular phase of Guard1anes 2021 will also be the one that defines the playoff duels, because during this Saturday’s games the UNAM team had the fortune that the three rivals with whom it disputed the reclassification ticket lost.
Andrés Lillini’s team needed a miracle at the beginning of this Saturday, since Pachuca’s victory against San Luis and Atlas’s salvation from the last place in the quotient table, whose place took away his place in the final phase, faced the varsity team to a panorama with multiple combinations of results to aspire to the playoffs.
At the moment, Querétaro has the last ticket to the playoffs, as he could not secure his place after falling to León on the last day. Tijuana could not beat Cruz Azul and get in the way of the playoffs and Mazatlán fell by the minimum difference against Monterrey to say goodbye to the tournament.
The three results I needed Pumas were confirmed, although for the UNAM team it is still an obligation to beat América, sub-leader general of the tournament.
Gallos has 21 points and a goal difference of -6; Mazatlán remained in position 13 with 21 units and Tijuana reached 20 units, insufficient to access the final phase.
Any victory of Gallos, Xolos or Mazatlán, would have eliminated Pumas.
Tomorrow against America he is obliged to beat him by any scoreboard, because the victory would take them to 12th place with 21 points and a positive goal difference, beating Gallos Blancos and Mazatlán FC.
The Saturday miracle was already achieved for the Pumas And it will be this Sunday at the Olympic University Stadium when they will have to defeat a team with only lost three games and whose distance between them in the classification is 17 units.
